Got a creative business – or want to start one? Then we’re your people. We are Creative Entrepreneurs. A first-of-its-kind online membership experience and community.
Creative Entrepreneurs Conversations, hosted by CE Founder Carolyn Dailey, are intimate 1:1 conversations with the most visionary and exciting creative founders and the key players around them essential to their success: investors, mentors, educators, cultural leaders and policymakers – we call them the “empowerers.”
The wild success of creative businesses (vs the starving artist stereotype) and how they bring creative vision to life – is the great untold story. We want to tell it now, to empower and educate others.

Who better to be part of our Creative Entrepreneurs Conversations than someone who actively champions creativity as the ‘magic dust’ of the economy with a seat at the political table? Join us at the House of Lords where Ed is now a peer, as he talks about his role as the UK’s longest-serving Culture Minister and how he successfully pushed for the creative industries to be taken seriously as an economic powerhouse.
As the ambient sounds of Westminster buzz and chime around us, get Ed’s take on the huge and often under-recognised importance of creativity, why tech companies receive more government support than the creative sector – and why creatives shouldn’t shy away from talking about their businesses. Listen to Ed’s top tips on how to get your political representative to support your creative business and hear how politicians can help you in ways you may never have imagined.
We are thrilled to welcome as our first guest on Creative Entrepreneurs Conversations the highly talented and visionary Andy Harries, Founder of multi-award-winning production company Left Bank Pictures, producer of Netflix mega hit The Crown.
Tune in to listen to Andy share his entrepreneurial journey, from his early days in rebellious Manchester with Lenny Henry, Jonathan Ross and more, his joining up with legendary writer Peter Morgan, the six Oscar nominations for The Queen, starring Helen Mirren, leading to setting up Left Bank. Very British roots which exploded onto the world stage. Andy also shares what it takes to start and grow a creative business and how selling a stake at the right time can help you take it to the next level.
Whatever happened to NFTs, what does the ‘Metaverse’ actually mean – and are there still opportunities for creatives to build successful businesses on blockchain technologies? Find out the answers to these questions and more in this recording of our recent Zoom Dive with Kristina Dimitrova, CEO of Interlaced.
